The Hamburg Dungeon (English for Dungeon) is a combination of history lesson, horror cabinet, show and rides presented by actors in the historic warehouse district of Hamburg. It was opened in May 2000 at Kehrwieder 2.
There will be several shows, which should be the "dark side" of Hamburg history. Thus, the historic Gängeviertel, the Great Fire of Hamburg in 1842 and the person of Klaus Störtebeker are discussed, which was executed in 1401 in Hamburg on the Grasbrook. Other contents include torture, the Inquisition and the Black Death. In addition, since 2018 there is the show "Santa Fu" in which it is about the notorious Hamburg prison. The visitors are included in the scenes.
Since March 2008 the tour ends with a "free fall". On the eight-meter-high course of the Swiss manufacturer ABC Rides, the visitors will be moved in two rows of ten people on a course of eight meters in the dark with a maximum speed of around 35 km / h towards the ground. The scene has been part of the story of a jailbreak from the Santa Fu detention center since 2018.
In 2014, the waterway on the subject of storm surge 1717 was replaced by a new one, on which a smuggling trip is simulated.
Owner of the Hamburg Dungeon is the Merlin Entertainments Group. Similar establishments exist as Berlin Dungeon, The Amsterdam Dungeon, York Dungeon, London Dungeon, Edinburgh Dungeon and Blackpool Tower Dungeon (in the Blackpool Tower).
